HOME RE-INSPECT

WHAT IS A HOME RE-INSPECT

A home re-inspection is when the home inspector returns to a home that he previously inspected and ensures that the seller indeed fixed/replaced the issues that the buyer requested (issues described on the home inspection report)

WHY IS A HOME RE-INSPECTION SO IMPORTANT?

A home re-inspection may save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars! The main reason you get a home inspection in the first place is to know the condition of the home you are buying. Another reason is to try and negotiate with the seller and have them fix/replace items addressed in the report. The things requested range from minor to expensive fixes that the seller promised to complete.


We have countless stories of where we return to reinspect it, only to find that the seller had not addressed the issues. One time we reinspected a house the day before closing and informed the buyers that the electrical work (the requested list was reasonably long) was never addressed and was in the same state as during the inspection. ​

HOW MUCH DOES A HOME RE-INSPECTION COST?

The service itself is free! The only time the reinspection will have an added fee is for gas when the inspector has to travel more than 10 miles out of Idaho Falls. That is one of the services we offer that sets Vantage Point Inspections apart from the rest of the home inspection companies in the area.

WILL YOU RE-INSPECT, THE REPAIRS THAT ANOTHER HOME INSPECTOR RECOMMENDED?

Yes, we can re-inspect the repairs that were requested based on another home inspection company's report. However, there is a service charge of $85. (gas charges may be added)
